I am trying to run Skyrim under Wine. I requested help in the Wine forum, and they told me it wasn't a wine problem and directed me here.

I have tried running it with and without nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates. I have tried on Wine 1.7, 1.6, and 1.5. I cannot find a help topic that fixes my problem. I have been looking for two days. Playonlinux does not work either.

I am running Ubuntu 64 bit 12.04 server edition with i3. I have a Nvidia GeForce 730M graphics card with 4 GB of video memory. I have quad core i7 and 12 GB of RAM. Graphical instructions will not work, as I am using neither Unity nor Gnome nor KDE (as I have said before, I am using i3).

Gave up and did a fresh install. That worked.
